Applicable Standards

Tremco Butyl Sealant meets or exceeds the requirements of the following specifications
• Conforms to U.S. Federal Specification TT-S-001657, Type 1
• ASTM C 1311

•CAN/CGSB 19-GP-14M, QPL 81002

Joint design

Tremco Butyl Sealant may be used in any vertical or horizontal joint designed in accordance with accepted architectural/ engineering practices. Joint width should be 4 times anticipated movement, but not less than 1/4” (6.4 mm).

Joint backing

Closed cell or reticulated polyethylene backer rod is recommended as joint backing to control sealant depth and
to ensure intimate contact of sealant with joint walls when
tooling. Where depth of joint will prevent the use of backer rod, an adhesive backed polyethylene tape (bond breaker tape) should be used to prevent three-sided adhesion. All backing should be dry at time of sealant application.
